This is a 5 day course run by a mountain guide. The course is for snowboarders wanting to try splitboarding for the first time. The course is Monday to Friday, to give you a day of ‘warming up’ and riding before the course starts, if you travel Saturday to Saturday.

The skills covered are choosing splitboard equipment, personal touring skills, including skinning, kick turning, using “chomps”, bootpacking, split skiing and making safe transitions between all of those! We will look at personal kit , mountain safety, glacier touring and riding safety, backcountry route selection and terrain choice , companion rescue, avalanche awareness and safe group management for backcountry riding. The course aim is to enable you to become a dependable member of a group, so you can go on splitboarding trips with more experienced friends, or Guides.

1:6 ratio . Pre-requisites: Some backcountry or sidecountry riding experience and ability to ride safely on terrain up to 30 degrees steepness, and a reasonable level of fitness. You need to be able to walk uphill for a couple of hours with a 10kg pack , reasonably comfortably.

Cost is £600 (gbp). Includes guiding, instruction and all safety equipment. Does not include: Accommodation, travel, personal splitboarding equipment, insurance, ski lifts, and Guide’s expenses away from the Chamonix valley. Splitboard hire can be arranged for you.
